3.2/5  rDev -8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Clear golden color with white head. Aroma is mostly grainy with some floral notes and a hint of booze. Taste is grainy and astringent with a floral and earthy bitterness on the finish. Medium body and carbonation.

3.74/5  rDev +7.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Served cold from 500ml bottle into straight pilsner mug.

L) Pale golden colour, clear, lots of bubbles, thinnish wispy head.

S) Very little to be honest, a bit of lager malt.

T) Nice clean taste, not a proper Munich hell, not malty enough, but a reasonable quality lager taste. No bitterness.

F) Very easy drinking, no aftertaste. Carbonation is just about right, maybe a bit light.

O) Decent German light lager, this cost me about £1.30 so I am a happy man. Nowhere near the quality of Augustiner, Paulaner et al.

Had this unexpectedly on tap at an Indian restaurant in Munich (Deesa). They also had the Pils on tap, plus Schneider Weiss in bottles and the food was superb.

I'm not a huge Helles Lager fan, but this is a very solid traditional Helles. A slight buttery, biscuty aroma, sweet and malty upfront with a somewhat drier hop-tinged bite finish.

The mouthfeel was too light and fizzy for my taste, but so are almost all filtered German Lagers on tap or bottle (You haven't had German beer until you've had unfiltered fresh Keller bier poured from the wood into a ceramic krug).

It was good enough, that I opted for a second and I will try the Pils when I return.

Clean, golden yellow color. White foam, quite compact.
At the smell a good maltiness and a touch of honey. But still quite fresh.
Same notes in the taste, malt and honeyed notes, with some more herbal hints, maybe camomile. A light hop.
Same again in the aftertaste, with some more bitterness.
Average to low in body.
